Authors: Williams, Robert
Abstract:

Exhibition related Williams' book and project 'Calvariae Disjecta: the many hauntings of Burton Agnes Hall'. Artist and academic Robert Williams re-presents references to the story from some 100 popular sources that extend across more than 150 years. The project, conducted in collaboration with German cultural sociologist Dr. Hilmar Schäfer, echoes the transmission of the story as quoted text, oral tradition and downright plagiarism, as it draws together the many references across time to a story that tells us as much about cultural and historical representations, as it does a lurid tale of murder, grave-opening, ghostly phenomenon and screaming skulls.
